        I mean..I have the frame and I want to put my photo's in. The part that surrounds the outside of the picture and gives it depth.

          You will need matte board and a matte cutter. two fairly expensive items, that if you do not have your work will end up looking crappy. And if you buy a cheep matte cutter your work will end up looking like pooooo!

          I would just take it somewhere and have it mounted or invest ($300-500) in a matte cutting system and learn to do it well, it will take some practice!

          good luck

            dang that sucks. See in my high school the teacher thought us how to do it,but of course we were using the schools materials and equipment.





            I still would like to learn,but for now.....I think I'll take it some where else


            thanks.

              Again, the percentage indicates a good skill level. A level on par with a design graduate. And by the way, if financial success is indicative of skill, design students must really suck, being that they...

              I was sorry to inform you. That's not an apology.

              Even more proof that you see what you want to see.

              200 "proposals" and 10 won?
              That's success?
              I'm assuming the same amount of effort and hours went into the 190 failures to bring in cash.

              If 5% is a win on a crowdsource...

              All of this points to why I try to stay clear of logo design except in the rarest of situations, and I never entertain thoughts of entering contests where I'd likely not be paid for my time.
